The Bear Tribe
The Bear Tribe Medicine Society is a network of contemporary
people of all races drawn together by the vision and legacy
of Sun Bear,
a Native American teacher whose life's work was to form a tribe
of teachers responsible for sharing with others those lessons
of earth harmony and responsibility that they had each successfully
The Bear Tribe is not a tribe bounded by geography or ethnicity,
but rather by belief and action. It is a tribe-in-progress composed
of people who are constantly learning better ways of serving the
sacred web of life. The Bear Tribe is a non-profit organization.
The Medicine Chief of The Bear Tribe is Dixie Wind Daughter (shown
above with Sun Bear, see bio on programs page.).
While the Bear Tribe honors the Native tradition from which Sun
Bear came, its cross-cultural teachings are based on many sources
of Earth Wisdom. The Bear Tribe teaches what its members are learning:
earth awareness, the philosophies of worldwide earth cultures as
they relate to contemporary society, personal vision, personal
responsibility, self-reliance, self-generated ceremony, working
with and for the earth, and finding ways to preserve and protect
the environment for this generation and all generations. We strive
to achieve this through our programs, books, and other items.
